Member of Parliament for South Western Clarendon Noel Arscott, says there’s so far an expected low voter turn out for the by-election in the May Pen Division.

The Jamaica Labour Party’s Tanya Lee Williams is facing off with the People’s National Party’s Earle Blake. Mr. Arscott says he’s not expecting higher than a 20-percent voter turn out. But he says he’s hoping for a peaceful process, noting there’s been a tradition of intimidation.

He says the Division has been neglected for years by Central Clarendon MP Mike Henry.

Mr. Arscott also says generally people are getting frustrated with the frequency of by-elections.
